Is poor land use a problem that can be fixed?



  1. 0 Votes

    Once development of an area is complete, it is difficult to fix problems with poor land use. Changing the way development occurs can still help, rather than continuing with sprawl development. This is an extremely contentious issue with many people who feel the government should not restrict the free market’s ability to build “to meet demand.” Because sprawl development is cheaper in one sense, without restrictions it is likely to continue. Some states have used Urban Growth Boundaries to protect agricultural and forested lands, and many communities in California are considering implementing the practice. Oregon has used Urban Growth Boundaries successfully for decades. Each city and town creates a boundary outside of which growth and development are restricted, and the boundaries are updated perhaps once a decade.
